This year, the Global City Teams Challenge (GCTC) is partnering up with Vanderbilt University, the University of Virginia, and DHS S&T to chair the SCOPE-GCTC workshop co-located with CPS Week on April 10, 2018 in Porto, Portugal. A call for papers has been launched, and a submission deadline has been set for Friday, February 16th. The workshop is said to be a research event, which makes it a great opportunity for universities or research centers related to FIWARE.
According to the event, “there is an urgent need for extensible, resilient, and flexible platforms and architectures for challenges in Smart Cities”. Participants in the workshop will therefore share ideas and opinions on various related topics, including: health, wellness, and human services at city scales, technologies for city-scale data gathering, and analysis, critical infrastructure modeling, simulation, and (real-time) control, and last but not least, secure and resilient cities.
The SCOPE-GCTC workshop will focus on innovative approaches, based on open platforms “that arise from new partnerships between cities, industry, and academia”. In addition, the event aims to look at matters, such as platforms and frameworks, the socio-economic implications of new technologies, and case studies of existing smart cities. Submissions of previously unpublished work that touches upon one of the topics mentioned above, as well as “industrial case studies from a diverse set of domains illustrating the challenges caused by the adoption of these architectures in that domain” are greatly encouraged by the organization.
